Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease:

Early symptoms may include slow growth, nystagmus (rapid, involuntary, rhythmic jerking of the eyes and the head), and failure to develop normal control of head movement. In adult-onset cases, deteriorating speech may be an early sign. Other symptoms may include tremor, various involuntary movements, grimacing, weakness, unsteady gait, and muscle contractures (shrinkage or shortening of a muscle). Over time, legs and arms may become spastic, and mental functions may deteriorate. Some patients may have convulsions and skeletal deformation, resulting from abnormal muscular stress on bones.
